Apple TV Is Finally Getting Support for 4K and HDR Video

Apple TV Is Finally Getting Support for 4K and HDR Video

At its release event Tuesday, Apple confirmed that it will release the Apple TV 4K, a new version of its set top box that'll feature support for 4K-quality video. An A10X Fusion processor and 3GB of RAM means that its CPU is twice as fast as the previous model, which came out in October of 2015.

Apple said it's working with Netflix for 4K titles and will launch Amazon Prime Video support later this year.

Apple will also begin providing new content in 4K HDR via iTunes, providing an easy source for consumers who want to rent or purchase TV shows and movies in the higher resolution.

The TV 4K will go on pre-order on September 15 and will go on sale on the 22nd.

There's no word yet on whether Apple TV 4K will be heading to South Africa. It runs the latest version of TV OS.

The merging of on-demand and live TV through over-the-top boxes like Apple TV appear to be the future, and updated hardware is another chance for Apple to push forward.

The Apple TV 4K also has, compared to its predecessor, much more power under the hood. You'll get a sharper picture, thanks to those additional pixels, but an even bigger benefit is HDR support with newer films, which adds more realistic lighting. The larger story here is support for HDR, which I can attest makes a big difference, providing far more vibrant colors than traditional color on TV screens.

When will the new Apple TV be released?

Other updates include a revamped TV app that will place an emphasis on live sports by showing games that are live, along with their score and time left in the period.

Apple's official launch today of an Apple TV that supports 4K and HDR comes after several months of hints popping up that alluded to Apple's plans.

"Since Apple TV is always at home, it's perfectly suited to act as a home hub for all of your HomeKit accessories, enabling remote access as well as automated control - eg, automatically turning on the lights at sunset". It is not yet clear whether the TV app will simply integrate with the existing tvOS app offerings or whether some of these content providers will expand the options available to Apple TV users. You can also get the non-4K Apple TV for the usual $US150 ($187).
